Life Expectancy Tool for Spearheads, 2010

To support Primary Care Trusts and local authorities, the Association of Public Health Observatories and Department of Health have developed the Health Inequalities Intervention Toolkit. This is designed to assist evidence-based local service planning and commissioning, including Joint Strategic Needs Assessments.

The Life Expectancy Tool for Spearheads also supports planning to achieve the national health inequalities Public Service Agreement target:

Starting with local authorities, by 2010 to reduce by at least 10 per cent the gap in life expectancy at birth between the fifth of areas with the worst health and deprivation (the Spearhead Group) and the population as a whole

Latest data on life expectancy gaps

The tool presents figures on gaps in life expectancy between each Spearhead area and England as a whole, based on data for 2006-08. An improved set of tables and charts are available which illustrate the causes of death, and age groups, which are making the greatest contributions to these gaps. To access the tool click here.

Commissioning Interventions – fully revised in this tool - new intervention to control high blood sugar

To support commissioning decisions, this part of the tool allows users to model the impact that systematically implementing evidence-based interventions at scale can have on reducing inequalities in life expectancy and All Age All Cause Mortality between each Spearhead area and England. A new intervention illustrates the gains in life expectancy which can be made by lowering levels of high blood sugar. This supplements the original interventions, which have also been updated within this latest version of the tool:

  • increasing numbers of smoking quitters
  • lowering infant mortality
  • prescribing antihypertensives and statins

To go to the intervention element of the tool, click here then select the Spearhead area you wish to model before clicking the Commissioning Interventions button
